Upon arriving at Mara Serena Airstrip, you will be met by Mara Engai camp’s friendly and knowledgeable Maasai guide who will be waiting to transfer you to the camp.

During your afternoon game drive, you will witness how the constant battle for survival makes the migration season a particularly exhilarating time to visit Masai Mara. As the sun sets you will return to camp for dinner. Listen to your Maasai guide tell stories about their culture with the grazing wildebeest herds just across the river.
Day 2 – September & October, 2019: MAASAI MARA FULL DAY
Enjoy morning and afternoon safari activities from Basecamp Masai Mara. Game drives are the best way to see the big wildlife including the famous big cats of the Masai Mara. Maasai Mara Game Reserve; considered Kenya’s prime wildlife area. This is due to the acacia-dotted plain scenery of stunning beauty where Black manned lions, cheetahs and leopards are found in abundance. Elephants, giraffes, genet cats just to mention a few Mara also hosts over 450 species of bird including the national bird of Kenya, the lilac breasted roller bird & other nocturnal birds. A visit to the Mara River you will get to see the huge crocodile as they bask in the sun and alongside them, you will also find hippos as they yawn their way to the surface of the water. During the great wildebeest migration, this river turns to a valley of death and only the fittest survive. Herds of wildebeests, zebras and antelopes cross the Mara River to seek greener pastures. This scene is among the 10 wonders of the world as it happens yearly. Return to camp for dinner, followed by story sharing and stargazing around the fireplace.
